Sliding Bevels, Bevel Setter

A sliding T bevel is an adjustable gauge for setting and transferring angles. The handle of our sliding bevels is made of wood and is connected to a steel blade. The blade can be locked at any angle by loosening or tightening a thumbscrew or wing nut.

CROWN Sliding Bevels Bamboo composite, brass, hardened steel - these are the materials used by the small CROWN factory in Sheffield to make their pleasing and well put together bevels. The measurements given relate to the length of the steel blade.

VERITAS Bevel Setter with metric rule
A sliding bevel is an excellent tool for transferring angles but not for reading them. This bevel setter lets you set specific angles (from 0 ° to 60 ° in 1/2 ° increments) on a sliding bevel or a workpiece as well as read angles already set. Both functions are useful for dovetailing, for machine set-up, for polygon work, or for accurately fitting a piece in a restricted location. Common dovetail and polygon angles are highlighted on the reverse side.

The etched stainless-steel blade is 3 inch wide and 7 inch long. It is both easier to use and more accurate than a protractor in the same applications. View
